    In “To His Coy Mistress,” through the characterization of the speaker, author Andrew Marvell proves the selfishness and licentiousness of humanity because people are often driven by their desires and fail to consider the feelings of others, seen most prominently in the manipulative and lustful speaker.

    I chose this GIF because people are so concerned about “ME ME ME” and what they want, but fail to recognize the feelings of others. We see this in “To His Coy Mistress” when all the speaker wants is physical relations with his partner, and he thinks that this is the only way to solve life’s problems. He is manipulative and convincing, trying to persuade her to fulfill his desires. Thus, the speaker is only concerned about himself and not his partner.
